St Peter's, Edinburgh
Schola Sancti Alberti / James MacMillan
Choral level of difficulty: Level 1 (5 greatest)
A very straightforward setting which opens with unison voices over a flowing organ part. The climax with short choral phrases interspersed with short full organ interludes are powerful, and the piece subsides, through a short treble solo, to a quiet ending. Another beautifully effective entry-level piece.
Repertoire note by Paul Spicer
"At all times the lines are lyrical and singer-friendly, and the word-setting inspired. A definite must for any competent choir's library."
